The GNOME desktop environment has recently released version 3, and with it a new interface called the GNOME Shell. The Ubuntu project has developed an alternative interface called Unity. In this presentation, Chris Irwin will tell us why GNOME Shell is awesome, and Darcy Casselman will do the same for Unity.
Some aspects they may cover include:
- Change is not (always) evil
- The common underpinnings and goals of Unity and Gnome Shell
- The benefits of competition
- Common complaints and rebuttals
